Whether people are searching online for a vacation hot spot, scanning the galaxy for distant planets or seeking ways to improve the environment on planet Earth, innovations from Microsoft Research could help deliver better results and entirely new experiences. TechFest 2008, an annual event that brings researchers from around the world together with people from across the company, is showcasing some of these innovations at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond.
Speaking at TechFest before an audience of customers, academics, dignitaries and media representatives, Rick Rashid, senior vice president of Microsoft Research, said, “Computing impacts every facet of our lives, from the way we work to the way we learn and live. Our job in research is to continuously advance technology to make our lives better in tangible ways.”
